Pharmacological information of olipristal acetate

Drug Information: Uterine fibroids (myomas) are the growth of non-cancerous masses in the uterus. They can sometimes cause heavy or painful periods, bloating, and urinary problems. Surgery is the most common treatment for fibroids with symptoms. Olipristal acetate is prescribed to reduce fibroid volume before surgery.

The hormone progesterone in women plays an important role in the development of fibroids. Olipristal acetate blocks the effects of the female hormone progesterone, so fibroids stop growing and remain small.

Olipristal acetate is sold in two brands and contains different amounts and uses. The low-dose pill (brand name Esmya contains 5 mg of olipristal acetate) is used to treat severe and painful periods of uterine fibroids. The higher-powered pill of olipristal acetate (brand EllaOne), which is called an emergency contraceptive, will be discussed in a separate article.
